Wismar and Medieval Beer
Go to Wismar not Berlin
September 11, 2019
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Karl our guide, he grew up in this area so knew it completely and had lived through the different political regimes which was so interesting to learn about. Loved the town, learning its history and architecture, churches, and the last stop at the brewery for the beer (light and dark glassfuls not just a taste!) with a warm German "pretzel" completed a perfect day. Also it was just my husband and I so a real personal tour. Thank you Karl.
Great tour! Guide was the best.

This tour is a must-do when in port at Warnemunde!

We had a private tour, as only my husband and I signed up while on the cruise ship and deciding that we didn't want to do the Berlin 6-hours-back-and-forth trip. Our driver Jens was amazing, and asked us what we like in a tour. We told him that we like history and architecture, and so he catered the tour to visit the Churches with historic artifacts, commentary on the Dutch Renaissance architecture style and why it was chosen there, the history of the town based upon its world-famous beer brews, and how the town was hit erroneously in WWII. We took a tour along the river port, and then did a distillery tasting. We brought back some expensive whiskey made from the beer, and tasted the Middle-Age Recipe beer (but bought extra beer--the Irish Red, which was fantastic). No one else who went locally to Warnemunde or Rostock was going on-and-on about their excursion as we did!

We had a private tour, as only my husband and I signed up after we found out our first choice was no longer available. We took The autobon at rates of speed higher than you can take on the US highways. Wismar was adorable, with its Dutch Renaissance house fronts. Our tour guide with SEG, Jenns, I think, was knowledgeable and friendly, and we learned a lot about East German history. We had some free time at the pier, where I recommend you plan a lunch of fish sandwich which you purchase fresh off the boat and they will cook it for you. The local beer place has been open. continuously sice the Middle Ages—amazing! If you enjoy kirsch or other fruit or whiskey distillates, ask to taste some 3.5 euros a taste—pretty pricey. But, we walked away with some neat finds. Pear, cherry, raspberry, and some sort of mixed fruit liquors distilled by this brewing company.
